City Rethinks Stance on Mental Health

Added on by Joe Magee.

A series of illustrations commissioned by Financial News Magazine (art director, Barry Ainslie) to coincide with Mental Health Awareness Week. The story concerns worries about the mental health of people working in the highly pressurised environment of the city banking sector. Stress, depression, insomnia and obsessive compulsive disorder are common amongst people working long hours with high expectations. There are attempts to reduce stigma - encouraging employees talk about their problems and managers to be supportive. Change is happening, we are told.
